Ed - the issue was that the numbering was on non-consecutive lines. The extra inserted lines about Tony Betancourt et al were throwing it off. I fixed that and it worked, though it included the track timing and extra info - not sure if that's what you wanted. I'll let you tidy it up, but I'd recommend using notational symbols (like asterisks) and then putting the notes after the setlist.

It just happened again on my next show. There are no extra lines in it this time. I can't imagine what I could be doing wrong :(

I'm going to leave it just as it is, instead of typing them in, so we can maybe get to the bottom of this.

The only thing I can think of is the lines starting with asterisks. Maybe try removing those and just writing DISC 1/DISC 2? Otherwise I can't see what would be tripping it up.

Those asterisks have been there from the beginning with no problem - that's almost 1000 shows. The only thing that's changed on my end is that I'm using Text Wrangler. Maybe I'll go back to Text Edit the next show.

Hmph, that's a puzzler. The last thing I can think of is perhaps how TextWrangler is treating carriage returns. Under TextWrangler > Preferences, click "Text Files", and make sure "Line breaks" is set to "Unix (LF)". I've used TextWrangler for nearly as many shows, so if that doesn't fix it, I'm stumped.

not sure what the issue was but i downloaded the text file and in text wrangler it was set at unix/mac classic. i find that mac classic inserts invisible characters that can lead to incorrect carriage returns. i saved it as unix/unix, uploaded it and repopulated the item's metadata with it. is there still an issue?

I checked my line breaks, and they were set to Unix (LF), so that wasn't the problem. However, as you say, Jeff, it was a Classic Mac document. Thanks for your efforts both of you; I'm confident that will solve the problem; I won't know for sure until I do another show.

Thanks greenone. I always remove the times, but that's a lot easier than typing in the names, especially for a one-finger typist like me :)

I'll follow your advice about not clogging up the setlist.
